NGC is very pleased to announce that Romain Caillet, a French researcher specialized in Islamist movements, has joined our team. Romain brings along his precious expertise on Salafist and Jihadist movements, the Syrian civil war and more generally on the Sunni/Shia relation in the Arab world. Find out more about him on our website.
NGC sat with Romain to discuss the status of the armed opposition to the Syrian regime, and try to identify:
(1) The current balance of power between the different groups,
(2) Their tactical and long-term goals as well as potential future scenarios
